Boruto: Naruto Next Generations' time travel arc has been a huge boon to the anime series, but not only has been a nostalgic trip down memory lane for fans of Masashi Kishimoto's original iteration but it has resulted in some impressive character growth for Boruto. With Sasuke surprisingly coming along for the time ride, the series has begun showing some more character growth from him too. While he's made great strides in terms of getting beyond his past in the series, the time travel arc is doing a lot to open him up to others. This is especially true of his relationship with Sakura.
After sharing a heartwarming moment between Sarada and Sasuke in a previous episode, it seems her letter to him will be key in how he interacts with the younger version of Sakura as Sasuke suddenly bumped into her in the latest episode much to the delight of fans.
Episode 132 of the series sees the younger Sakura coming home from her harsh training with Tsunade. She's distracted, so she suddenly bumps into Sasuke. Sasuke had been trying to avoid her this entire time because he has no idea how it would impact their future together, and he couldn't help this moment that seems to be fate tying these two together in this way.1comments
He tells her to be careful after keeping her from falling over, but suddenly tries to get away from her before she talks to him too much. But in his hurry, he suddenly drops the note that he had kept from Sarada. Leaving it for Sakura to pick it up, this sweet moment between the two will definitely have greater implications for their future.
Originally created by Masashi Kishimoto for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999, Naruto follows a young ninja, with a sealed demon within him, that wishes to become the leader of his home village. The series ran for 700 chapters overall, and was adapted into an anime series by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex that ran from 2002 to 2017. The series was popular enough to warrant a sequel, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations which is set several years after the events of the original Naruto story and features the children of many of its key characters such as Naruto and Hinata.
